    Exclamation TB's I Have Known - [FB PAGE STARTED w/ Database!!! - update on 1st post]

    UPDATE: I have started a Spreadsheet so that we can have a Master List. It can be edited by anyone, so let's see if we can all add to it, with out it getting trashed. Here is the link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvEQvR7Wztv8dEhQYUxRX0ZQZHRyZGVIWnB6THpkd FE#gid=0

    ***Click the link in my sig line below, to go to our NEW FACEBOOK PAGE. ****

    ************************************************** *******

    I once found a TB I galloped, at Re-Run in Ky. I contacted the director there, and td her everything I knew about him, and also gave her my contact I do for any potential adopters. Not long after a woman contacted me, and eventually adopted him. She later told me that it was hearing all of my stories about his early years that sealed the deal for her.

    UPDATE - Thanks to catknsn, we now have a list of every TB that has been named on this thread, so far. If you would like to add a TB - or TBs - please post their names on this thread, or contact catknsn.

    The Link to the ***OLD*** COTH TB's We Have Known List is: http://www.pretzelkitty.com/cothlist.html

    Seeing how small the horse community really is, I thought it would be neat if we could post all the Thoroughbreds we have trained/ridden/owned and cared for, and compare notes. Who knows....you may find out what hapened to that TB you once galloped years ago.

    I'll start:

    Haven't met any of those, but wondering if anyone has worked with my horse's sire, Bounding Basque (now deceased--raced in the mid 80's) or any
    of his progeny?

    And a horse named Fort Metfield that was still racing several years ago--
    gorgeous horse! Saw him at Lone Star and he took my breath away that day.

    I couldn't EVER post my whole list. If anyone has a Pacific Northwest horse, though, I might know it.

    BasqueMom, we have either a half- or full-sister to Bounding Basque. She's not any trouble.

    Nope. Delightfully Irish was a mare that my husband and I bred, that ended up maturing at 14.2 1/2 hands. After my husband and I seperated I gave her back to husband who donated her to some woman in Athens I think, though I haven't anything more about her. She's 7 and a light bay with a checkmark on her forhead. I sure miss my Maggie Mae.

    Freebird- When did you have Master Rasper?

    I remember him from his days owned by Kinross Farm and being a steeplechaser.

    I galloped on a training farm and didn't know most of their JC names (plus it was 20 years ago!) But here are a few I did know from that farm:

    Tandis Que
    Bunratty
    Putting Green
    Endless Love
    Ecleo
    Bold American

    These guys we own now but they are all 15-20 yrs. old!

    Awwww.......I haven't seen him since he was a weanling. He and his dam, With Love belonged to my boss - the trainer of the farm I galloped/worked at, and also the father of my H/J instructor. We called him Derby at the farm, and he was a pistol! He would beat up on the other babies - as well as his mama, lol - and even broke my finger when he decided to rear up one day and my finger got in the way. We always said he would be a great 'chaser, with his build.

    He did fairly well as a chaser. I can't remember if Kinross sold him or he got claimed...but I remember him being a PITA at the races. But...Neil does really well with horses that have quirks. I think all of his really nice racers have all had something funny about them (I think it's Sur La Tete that is clostraphobic (sp?)).

    You all are going to make me think to remember all the ones I've ridden. That's a BIG list! I'll get back to work and think on it...and post back
